Join with us for the official Recovery Day Ottawa celebration in the National Capital at Ottawa City Hall, on Saturday, September 24, 2016.
On September 24, citizens of Ottawa are gathering to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities.
We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where all individuals will have access to the support they need when seeking help.
We believe by speaking out as people living in recovery, or as family, friends and supporters of those affected by addiction, we save lives. Through our personal stories and shared experience, we hope to inspire others to join us.
Together, we demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.
ABOUT RECOVERY DAY OTTAWA
Recovery Day Ottawa is an annual community event organized by CAPSA Ottawa in the month of September. Our purpose is to help reduce the stigma surrounding addiction and raise awareness about recovery in our community. We endeavour to engage the broader community by building partnerships with local, provincial and national organizations and raising awareness through the #RecoveryAlly campaign.
As part of our mandate, we reach out to community organizations who are involved in addiction treatment and addiction-related services. If you or your organization would like to get involved, please contact Gord Garner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
